In this webinar you will Learn what HIPAA specifications might apply to your business model and how to document your risk management strategy.

Overview:

Healthcare is an industry ripe for innovation and disruption. Many entrepreneurs see opportunity but hold back because they are unsure how to navigate the complexities of HIPAA and protecting patient data.

Learn what HIPAA specifications might apply to your business model and how to document your risk management strategy.

Why should you Attend: The opportunities in healthcare technology are enormous. The risks are equally daunting.

Is your software team equipped to protect the sensitive patient data your product will collect? Even if you apply good cybersecurity practices, how does all of that line up with your legal obligations under HIPAA? What will happen to your company if-or when-you are hit with a data breach? If the prospect of killer fines from the Department of Health and Human Services is making you lose sleep, this training will help.

The challenges are great, but manageable with the right strategy
